Samba Description Field

Feature state



The Samba Server YaST UI should allow users to edit the description field that is visible to the network for each machine.

The Samba Server configuration component in YaST allows users to set shares, workgroup, netbios identifier and WINS server for the machine, however it does not allow the user to set the description field. The is somewhat inconvenient as the default description is always the Samba version string, meaning that Windows machines (which display the description string FIRST when viewing the network) will group all Linux machines on the network together. It would be helpful to be able to set this field without enabling swat or editing the Samba config file.

Just bumping this up.  I'd like to see it get into openSuSE 11.3
